Fire Hazard Remains Low

Not much activity on forest fire front but the warm weather in the forecast may change things.

The fire hazard remains low with only 9-human caused fires over the long weekend.

A majority of the small fires were in the Thunder Bay and Nipigon districts.

The region has only seen 16-fires this season.

Warm and dry weather will likely send local residents camping in the coming days and the Ministry of

Natural Resources urges folks to ensure campfires are monitored at all times and put out before leaving.
